On Bullshit

So 60 Minutes does a piece on the best-seller On Bullshit.


It got me thinking about the term "bullshit." Why did the bull's poop become the most popular in our language? Why not the dog's? The monkey's? The gerbil's? Is their poop of less-importance, when measured up against that of the mighty bull? And if its poop is the more important, more popular, then why does the term mean something is false? Hm.

(Yes, I've added the book itself to my Amazon Wishlist.)
